We invite anyone and everyone to attend one of our two Sunday gatherings as we celebrate God in song, scripture, monthly communion and prayer. At St. Paul’s, we gather together throughout the week in both large and small groups, but our largest gatherings take place on Sundays in our sancturary.
Contemporary Service 9:00 am
Traditional Service 10:30 am
Join us @ 971 Woodroffe Ave. Ottawa, ON K2A 3G9
In addition to these two services we offer a whole array of life group opportunities, programs for children and a nursery.
What is Worship?
One of the most important acts we can do as Christians is to worship God in Jesus Christ. It is here that we enter into His presence to give Him the glory and honour He deserves, and to receive for ourselves the blessing of His Spirit. The cornerstone of our worship services at St. Paul’s is the preaching of the word, brought faithfully each week to the congregation by our Pastor. Every Sunday at both services, our Pastor instructs, encourages and challenges us with the word of God, presented in a relevant, contemporary manner.
At St. Paul’s, we believe it is essential to share the good news of the message of salvation through Jesus Christ in a way that is relevant to the society around us.
Our early service, Sunday mornings at 9 am, seeks to provide an informal atmosphere in which to worship and share fellowship. Our contemporary worship team provides leadership, and members of the congregation assist with leading particular aspects of the service, such as the congregational prayer. The musical focus is predominantly contemporary (both in terms of the song selection and instrumentation), while preserving a strong respect for the “hymns of the past” (sometimes re-done with new musical arrangements).
This service is particularly suitable for families with children of all ages. Nursery Care is provided for children from 0-3 years old and Sunday School is available for children ages 3-12. In addition, an adult Sunday School class runs concurrently with the service. Please join us for our next contemporary service!
Of equal importance to presenting the gospel message in a manner relevant to our contemporary society is the appropriate preservation of the depth of historical tradition on which our faith is based. At our second service, Sunday mornings at 10:30 am, you will find many of the familiar “traditional” elements.
Musical leadership is provided by the choir and our gifted pianist and organist provide a rich musical backdrop against which to sing the many great hymns of the faith, together with contemporary selections. Young people and children are welcome to remain with us for the entire service. Colouring and puzzle materials based on the morning’s theme are provided. Nursery care is provided for children 0-3 years old and Sunday School is available for children ages 3-12.
Christian Education programs for the Youth Group and adults runs from 10:30 to 11:30 AM. We look forward to seeing you next Sunday!
